March is Roscoe Month over at True Bias! For the last few weeks Kelli, the designer of True Bias sewing patterns, has been showing different versions of the Roscoe Blouse. Seeing each of them has provided just the motivation I needed to sew the version I've had sitting in my brain for over a year now.

I've been sewing and wearing high-waisted jeans for awhile, but my selection of complementary cropped tops has been lacking. Especially lacking are tops with lots of room and movement, to balance out my fitted Ginger Jeans. A cropped Roscoe Blouse is exactly the type of silhouette I've been needing in my wardrobe.

Roscoe is a roomy raglan peasant blouse or dress with a gathered neckline and neckties. This sewing pattern is intended for lightweight woven fabrics like voile, rayon challis, linen or gauze. When this Navy Botanic Rayon Voile (discontinued) arrived in our shop, I immediately knew it was destined for the cropped Roscoe Blouse. This 3.7 oz. Navy Rayon Herringbone would also be an ideal substrate for this design.

The photo above shows the Roscoe Blouse straight out of the envelope at full length. After I took those photos, I cut 4" from the bottom of the blouse for my cropped version seen below.

Worn with my Ginger Jeans (View B) and my new Mohinder City Slippers (my new favorite ethical shoe company), I can already tell this Roscoe Blouse is going to get a lot of wear. The rayon voile fabric is super lightweight, so I'll likely wear this during the summer with a pair of cutoff shorts. But it also looks great layered under a leather jacket for transitional weather. 

If you haven't yet, grab a copy of the Roscoe Blouse and sew up your own version for spring! 

Happy sewing!
